Spent the weekend at the Crown. It is very central ideal located within walking distance to the foreshore and the top of town.
We booked a balcony suite with separate lounge.
The room had a lovely view of the harbour and surrounds. The room itself was spacious and comfortable. Nice soft pillows and not too soft mattress.
The staff were friendly and attentive. Breakfast was delicious although I did have to wait 20 minutes for my eggs to be cooked and there was no bake beans!. There was a good variation of bacon and plenty of fruit. The do it yourself juicer was a nice touch.
Overall a lovely stay.
